Low Profile Signs

A locking vandal cover, silkscreened letters and durable riveted tracking are included with every changeable letter sign.

Locking Vandal Cover
Unfortunately, the stealing of letters or their rearrangement into inappropriate messages is a very real concern for today’s sign owner. The embarrassment and added expense incurred because of vandals can limit the effectiveness and enjoyment of your new sign. Stewart’s vandal cover gives you the peace of mind of knowing that your message will be displayed as intended until you—and only you—are ready to change it.


Hinged at the top with locks across the bottom, the cover opens and stays open at 90 degrees, allowing you to change your message easily and safely. Instead of gas struts, which typically fail with repeated use, Stewart signs use our proprietary Glide & Lock© system (where applicable) to hold the vandal cover in place. Better yet, these specialized prop arms are built to last the lifetime of your changeable letter sign.

The vandal cover is made from the same graffiti- and vandal-resistant Makrolon SL® polycarbonate as your sign’s face. Makrolon SL’s built-in UV protection prevents the yellowing and cracking commonly seen with standard polycarbonate and Plexiglas® covers. And unlike sealed vandal cover systems, Stewart’s vandal cover allows air to circulate at strategic points along your sign’s letter tracking. This prevents condensation, mildew and mold from building up on the cover and impairing the readability of your message.

Included Letters & Storage Case
Every Stewart changeable letter sign comes with a full set of letters, numbers and punctuation plus a storage case. All characters are injection-molded and silkscreened in black.

Designed expressly for changeable letter signs, our proprietary Stewart font is optimized for both readability and maximum message length. As an added bonus, we’ll provide you with 30 more free letters of your choice once you’ve received and used your sign!

Riveted Letter Tracking
Unlike the tracking on other institutional signage, Stewart’s letter tracking isn’t glued onto the sign face. Why? Glues and other adhesives often fail or discolor with repeated exposure to sunlight.
Instead, our tracking is attached to our signs using white metal rivets, giving you a clean, professional look that lasts. White rivets blend well with white tracking and will not be seen from a distance.

Trim Options
Enhance your sign’s profile and complement your architecture. All trim pieces feature the same rust-proof aluminum and powder-coat finish as the rest of the sign cabinet.


Word Panels
For a seamless, streamlined look, Stewart can create custom word panels that slide into the letter tracking of your sign. Post names, times and regular events on a single durable piece that can be easily added, moved or removed as needed. Available as single or double lines of text, word panels can be as wide as your changeable letter area—or less, if desired. Our word panels are made of the same material as our changeable letters and feature silkscreened black text.
